July 21, 2017 - July 21, 2017
The apostle Paul has been the most frequently cited authority restricting women from shared leadership not only in ministry but also in marriage and service to the world. Those who rely on Paul in challenging women’s equal voice and agency often overlook not only the many examples of women leaders building the church beside Paul but also his theological emphasis on newness of life in Christ. This workshop at CBE's 2017 international Conference, "Mutual By Design" will show how 1 Timothy 2:11-15 and 1 Corinthians 14: 34-35 are eddies off the stream of Paul’s egalitarian teachings and practices.

On July 21-23, 2017, Christians from around the world will gather in Orlando, Florida, for CBE's 2017 conference, “Mutual by Design: Building God’s Church Together.” Across the globe, women and girls suffer oppression because they are considered less valuable than men.

Join Dr. Mimi Haddad at the 2016 "Truth Be Told" international conference as she will be one of the plenary speakers to speak out against gender based violence and lecture on "Ideas Have Consequences: Justice Begins with a Consistent Reading of Scripture." The teachings and practices of Christian faith have significant implications for girls and women globally. As Plato said, ideas rule the world. Ideas have consequences, and religious ideas even more so, since they are said to represent God. What has been the impact of Christian teachings? Have they nurtured women's flourishing? This lecture will answer these questions by considering the three views the church has historically held regarding women's value, purpose, and equality, each supported with a particu...
